Registration of botanical names was put into the Tokyo ICBN effective 1
January 2000.  The only way that it could be passed was with the
condition that the idea be voted on a second time at the next Int. Bot.
Congress in St. Louis.  Those in favor of this should be looking ahead to
St. Louis and be ready to support the idea and vote for it again.
